Marjana Jaidi / June 01, 2012
Welcome to the Festival Digest, our new weekly column in which we give you the scoop on this week’s festival news, courtesy of our friends at Cultivora. Here’s what you missed…
Memorial Day Weekend saw not one, but two major festivals: Movement in Detroit, Michigan, covered by Rose Mardit (and for HiFi, Oliver Correa… pics coming soon), and Sasquatch! in George, Washington, covered by Laura Baker-Finch. Coverage will be posted through the weekend, so stay tuned for more.
Safa Jinje chatted with Club Cheval about their residency at the Paris Social Club for the second installment of Cultivora’s “Artists in Residence” series. And speaking of Paris, Marjana Jaidi stopped by the Levi’s Flagship Store on the Champs Élysées to check out their collaboration with James Murphy and Busy P.
Back in New York, Jason Rezvan and Marjana Jaidi ate their way through the inaugural edition of The Great GoogaMooga. Also in New York, New Music Seminar, which will take place at Webster Hall from June 17-19, has announced their first-ever festival.
